|Because we’re worth it. . .|
One of my favorite minor idle pastimes is trolling cosmetic counters when I’m in department stores or Monoprix. I admit I find the exercise somewhat overwhelming, but I’ve done my homework well in advance.
I read articles about the promises products proffer, then I hone in on the ones that capture my imagination. Case in point: Nude Magique Blur Cream from L’Oreal.
As I write this I’m wondering if I’ve mentioned it before. (Things sometimes blur in my mind as well as on my face apparently. . .)
If I have, which is possible, I have an idea for another approach: A long-term testing cycle. I’ve been using it regularly now for several months and find the blur to be a very interesting product. The more I use it, the more I like it.
|This one is a “miracle” while the one I’m using is “magique” which makes me wonder whether this one is better. I would imagine it’s better to experience a miracle than mere magic. I’ll have to investigate.|
I found consensus in an article fromRefinery29 about Hollywood makeup artists’ favorite drugstore products.
I like the idea of a primer, and basically that’s what it is. It has a strange consistency in that it comes out of the tube like a thin, narrow worm or string and it even wiggles a bit. Never mind. It should be applied over moisturizer and it has a slippery feel going on as well as on the face, one could be more delicate and call it “satiny” perhaps.
Forget about that aspect as well because once it “sets” its capacity for smoothing small imperfections like tiny lines and visible pores is quite remarkable.
You top it off with your foundation and all the rest, or whatever your regular makeup routine may be.
It does add another step to the process, but I love “doing my face.” I find it restful and usually pleasing when I’m finished — all things considered. . .
